• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

    Need help identifying a 1920’s triple calendar watch ty act

    I did find this movement which is very close by General Watch Co. or “Société d'Horlogerie La Générale”, which I guess the Brandt brothers comptoir business ‘Brandt fils’ was changed to, which eventually became the Omega Watch Company.

    Saint John, N.B. pocket watch

    Anyone recognize the maker of this watch?

    The Lorenz Furtwangler & Sonne monogram looks similar. I’m not sure. Or perhaps his son Georges Furtwangler? The GF monogram looks very similar to georges furtwangler ( which I guess is the son of lorenz furtwangler ) but a google search doesn’t show very much at all about him, let alone...

    I’ve looked for identifying marks but can’t find any. I didn’t remove the dial to look as I would prefer to not take it apart. The case measures 32mm and is sterling silver. I’ve done a google search and couldn’t find any Other examples this early other than a Patek Philippe, Breguet and...

    marked Omega Seamaster marked 18K

    Look at the Omega symbol on the dial and how uncentered the punch out is! It wasn’t even a half attempt at making it. Movement is nice though. I would find a nice case that this movement was meant to be in.
